high. what do you expect out of cvs with this environment you're talking about. >> well, we like the stock fair number of reasons. i think it's the right stock for the environment. we're in an environment where i don't think we're going to see tremendous growth because of the economy so companies that can grow their earnings at double-digit levels will be in favor. cvs is one of those companies. they're also giving you revenue growth. you get a little bit of a dividend, raising your dividend. earlier at 30%, and the stock is still a reasonable value trading at 13 times 2013 estimates. it's a stock that's also a play on obamacare and health care going forward. >> tom: give us 30 seconds on f.i.t.b., another one you're putting money to work for and it has really nicely. >> it has. we're seeing better scores in our models. you get a yield of about 2.5%. the stock is cheap at 10 times earnings. they're buying back over 10% of their shares. there's been insider being in the stock in recent months. i think there's a lot to like. i think the earnings story is improving. and, again, i th

, a few pennies better. that is $100 a year. operating earnings from the s&p in an environment where the long-term u.s. government reference riskless rate is under 2%. that is a bargain. melissa: i was interested to see the latest trading volumes. you are talking about the average investor walking away. in august, it was down 37%. that is year over year. that is compared to last august. when we see that the markets are up 9% for the year, i wonder if the individual investor is walking away from returns? >> i think so, melissa. the investing class is still undergoing dramatic shock and recovery from it. that is why all of these bond flows continue to go into funds and those fund managers have to go by treasuries at 1.6-1.7 because they have to do something to put it to work. if you believe that interest rates are going to be low for a number of years, and i do, i believe bernanke will do what he says, then stock prices are headed higher. maybe much higher. lori: isn't it a problem then that the fed is manipulating the stock market? therefore, do you have to be a little bit cautious th
that in a crisis environment at the 11th hour, some sort of arrangement will be made that will delay the fiscal contraction that's on the books now. so that the economy will continue to grow in the first half of next year, but at a slow pace. >> susie: thanks, joel. joel prakken, chairman of macro economic advisors. >> tom: still ahead, what's worse than training somebody and having them leave? not training somebody and having them stay. an on the job training program designed to create new jobs. in just a few hours, president obama and governor mitt romney will face off in the first presidential debate. as both candidates fight for votes, each has clear objectives: governor romney needs to rebuild momentum for his campaign, and the president is looking to widen his lead in the polls. to do it, they're each using their own sets of numbers. darren gersh breaks them down, and tells you what you need to know about them. >> reporter: for challenger mitt romney, tonight's debate is his best chancto sell hielf to voters who are still undecided. and one way to do that is to focus less on facts and agg
know what the economic environment is here in the states and globally. so you just cannot have high expectations. and if you have a good surprise, let's say overall earnings rather than the 2.4% let's say earnings are up, 2 to 5%, you know s that really a big surprise? i'm not really sure it is. because you are still pretty close to 0. and nobody is expecting the economy to really accelerate over the course of the next couple of quarters. >> susie: all right so, what is going to be driving investment strategy over the coming weeks and months? is it going to be the earnings or is it going to be more of the big economic picture and the elections? >> how does this play out in the markets. >> well, i am a top down guy. so i want to know what the global economy is doing. i want to know what the u.s. economy is doing. in my mind, we're going to be in this modest growth, modest inflation environment for a while. i mean at least through 2013. but i think it is going to be positive. i think the types of sectors that we're looking at are the ones that are really going it to be sensitive to a
can be. liz: how do you deal with the low interest-rate environment or refinancing loans and losing a couple basis points on every loan? >> it is true this extended low-interest rate environment is not favorable to bank earnings. liz: ben bernanke ordeal with it? >> i can also understand his position that stimulus hit the economy. it is good for bar worse to have low interest rates and now we have lower rates from short to long it is easier to borrow or give people reasons to borrow so last time we checked we made money when people borrow loans. it is good for us but it does shrink the spread on our loans. that is why you have to be cost-effective, acquiring good clients and looking at how to generate more business. liz: they expects fourth quarter loan growth? >> as we have talked about it we continue to see among our commercial clients that they continue to borrow and acquiring competitors and investing in business and doing things commensurate with an industry that returned to profitability. they are not hiring which is part of why we talk with ben bernanke about q e 3 and the th
of the deloitte cfo service. they were asked what their views are on the current operating environment. joining us with more, chief economist at deloitte. good to see you. i suppose we had a record second quarter of declines. >> confidence went through the floor back in june on the result of what's going on in the euro area. you've seen a bit of a bounce. risk appetite up is bit so i think cfos are looking at the same things the equity markets are looking at, qe-3 in the states, ecb bond buying. but the interesting thing is the underlying stock support is getting rather more defensive, they're more focused on cash. if respect. >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence?f re >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence?espe >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence?ct. >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence?. >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence? >> so what can he can to in terms of laying confidence? >> a lot of concerns relate to things outside the uk, in particular the weakness of the euro area, uncertainty. so there are things
of cisco, having the experience that you've had at yahoo! tell me how you see the environment changes and where specifically you would expect growth to happen in technology in the next five years. >> well, i think technology in general -- probably the biggest challenge is not so much the social interactions but everybody's talking so much about data. data is very, very hard to mine correctly. so i think you're going to see a push back towards a lot of enterprise apps that really figure out how it get information to the companies so they can actually be more personalized for the user, but easy to say, a lot to do. >> and really quick, on what you're seeing out there, how tough is europe right now for technology? what are you seeing in terms of the global slow down? >> well, europe continues to baffle us in general in technology. it looks like it's getting softer, not stronger. you know, companies that diversified over the past 20 years do make sure they had good portfolios in all the regions, you know, are taking a hit now with europe. i think it's broad based, so it shouldn't be a kno
clients, the environment you want to stay is diversified as possible. i think this last quarter was a great example of that. europe, everybody looks at the negative in europe, yet it was a good place to be. spread your bets out right now. >> so do you expect that we are at this point going to see pretty good guidance, tough guidance? what about that guidance that you're looking for in. >> yeah, i think that's going to be the big question here. i think today's a great example of that. you have alcoa, the traditional capital goods manufacturing cyclical versus a yum brands, which is going to tell you maybe how the global consumer is doing. even the guidance we're going to get today may very well set the tone for what kind of messaging we get this earnings season. >> i want to tell you that alcoa is out three cents a share, actual earnings. expecting a flat showing. so it looks like it's better than expected. we are looking at a pop in the stock as these numbers are released. of course, we want to get more details on the quarter. revenue coming in at $5.8 billion versus an estimate
and retail business are rising. and also in some lines of the industrial business. so the overall environment for the insurance industry is very good. your free float is about 20%. will you stop here for a while or will you raise money in the future? >> we'll raise money in the future, however, not for the next 24 months. we are sufficiently capitalized now after this ipo on for the next 24 months, but there will be further capital increases in the future. this is just our first step in to becoming a listed insurance company. >> all right. and just give us your view where we stand at the moment with the world economy. because it's interesting where you're looking at your operations. eurozone still in the grips of recession or low growth, weaker growth in asia. just give us your sense of how you view the world and how it transfers back into your business. >> i'm 100% sure that the euro will survive. the euro is instrumental for the future of europe. the emerging market particularly in brazil and mexico are very interesting growing markets for the future. and also the middle and eastern europea
environment. i don't think it's a sure thing we're going to have a continued recovery, but i think the chances are that we will keep going. connell: martin, thank you again for always coming on us with. dr. martin bailey with us from d.c. thank you, sir. >> thank you. dagen: california gasoline prices hitting another new record high for the state today. $4.66 a gallon. that is up 86 cents from one year ago. and california's governor jerry brown taking emergency action as the state's prices have become -- well, they are the highest in the nation. connell: they certainly are. we go right now with fox news correspondent adam housely in l.a. with the latest. >> dagen and connell, you mentioned 4.66 a gallon or so, you would be hard-pressed to find that price in much of los angeles. in fact right here behind me you can see this gas station 4.99 for regular, 5.19 for premium. just down the street, the gas there is 5.39 for regular unleaded. across los angeles, in fact, i drove down the state yesterday from northern california to southern california, no matter where you drive, you're finding gas pric
we do with your clients. what we're seeing in really in environment of really slow growth next several years due to our fiscal situation, focus on good, solid companies paying solid dividends above the average of the stock market. >> do you think about minimizing tax consequences? >> absolutely. in a lot of the nonqualified portfolios that we manage, there is a pretty high mlp concentration. we do use mlps. >> master limited partnerships, usually oil and gas. >> right. so kinder morgan is one of the ones we like to use. actually it pays roughly a six 1/2% dividend. a good percentage of that dividend is considered return of basis. >> kinder morgan is one of the stocks you like right now. you also like vodafone? >> right. >> why vodafone and did not say verizon? >> good you mentioned verizon. vodafone owns 45% of the verizon wireless. >> right. >> the noise thing about vodafone it is more undervalued than verizon and also pay as higher dividend yield than verizon. a great way to play verizon wireless without all the wireline issues when it comes to buying verizon. it is really a
this volatility kind of in a range-bound environment, so this could be an interesting back-and-forth action until the election. > > have a great day. that's tim biggam of tradingblock. > > thank you angie. thanks for watching today. coming up next week: you don't hear this very often, but a number of investment managers believe the economy is getting better. wait till you hear why they are very bullish on the economy and the stock market. and maybe you should be too? from all of us at first business, enjoy your weekend! >>> we're live in san francisco where the entire police force will be out on the streets this weekend. we'll tell you why extra officers are needed for events planned. >>> the steps bay area transit agencies are taking to make it easier for people to get around during this very busy weekend. >>> a and coup l rob -- and a couple robbed at a bart station overnight. how the two suspects ended up in the hospital. >>> good morning. thank you for joining us on this friday morning, october 5th i'm pam cook. let's find out if it will cool down some more. steve paulson has the forecast. >>
between from a kitraditi conservatives and ahmadinejad, who is to blame for the current environment. so that's the part where we'll have much more debate. and the real intention or the real intent of the sanctions is to change iran's position on the nuclear program. that's likely to be less effective. iran needs face saving mechanisms. a deal which guarantees that domestically iran looks weak. so going into negotiations with the west -- >> is there such a solution where they can come to an agreement that satisfies both his demands for that and the west demands for no nuclear proliferation? >> it's a delicate matter. it's framing the agreement as if it's a win/win situation, but such conditions would directly not allow iran to develop a nuclear weapon. negotiations will be hard. >> good to see you. thanks very much. henry, thanks for joining us, as well. >>> still to come, the controversial fracking technique used in the natural gas sector is rapidly gaining progress. we'll find out why. >>> these are the headlines. september employment report in the u.s. is on the minds of investors and
as a debate environment? i think this format which is the same format that you saw in the first debate will enable some back and forth and some fireworks. so that's why this debate this week is very interesting. but the town hall debate is next for the presidents -- debate for the presidential debate format in new york. and then you have the foreign policy debate. so it is really romney's debate performance and campaigning this all these battleground states. dagen: what about on the president's side? is it also the most critical thing for him, his debate performance, or are they focused on something completely different? >> well, i think they are focused on the spending and the get out the vote effort. they have an infrastructure that they've spent a lot of money on, and you see he's still out campaigning trying to raise money because there is a machine that costs a lot of money to run, a lot of offices around the country to try to get out those voters on election day. you know, the economy while some -- you all talk about it all the time, some quarters are doing better, like housing p
are taking risks. >> oh, sure, in this environment, i mean, you know, we're watching liquidity like a hawk because there's great sense tomorrow morning it could go the other way, in effect you don't invest as much, you don't take as much risk. >> how would you counter the argument that businesspeople and the wealthy have had their way for the past 2030-years as they've increased their lead in terms of income disparity and gotten richer and richer, and you would have hoped that some of that would have trickled down, if it works you would have hoped the average person would have participated in the good times and haven't and you need a president that is going to come in for the powerless people that aren't able to set policy and pay to go do things and you need someone that will represent them in the future. how was is that pretty damned good? >> yes, sir. >> you can take this. thank you for writing it for me. >> i'll get you a job at "the new york times." the reality is as follows. the whole focus has been on how the quote, one percenters or ten percenters, how the top earners moved ahead o
's get straight to the markets and talk about investing in this environment. gentlemen, good see you. thank you so much for joining us. dan, let me kick this off with you. what do you think happened at end of the day today? seems this market has been trading on some worries last several sessions. yet, we did see some optimism at end of the day. >> absolutely. it's a case of perhaps, you know, still do not fight the fed. what we were watching specifically was apple. you mentioned it. we were looking for support on the stock at around 650. wouldn't you know it, it hit their intraday lows. they don't want to see that stock drop. the interesting thing with that is, you know, apple is a bell weather that's really driving the nasdaq 100, driving a lot of these larger cap benchmarks we follow. if you keep that buoyed, you're going to keep the markets buoyed going forward. >> that's a really good point. i guess, david, for those fund managers who have not owned apple, they're going to be playing catch up fourth quarter so their fund looks better by year end, right? >> it's possible. you have
to be a challenging environment. mandy, great point. china's deceleration is very important. it's very real. you're seeing that in commodity complex. i think that revenue line is going to be very, very important. that's probably going to come in soft. >> all right. we'll leave it there. thanks, everybody. appreciate your time tonight. we'll keep watching this market and the fundamentals around it. we look now where the big money is eyeing and whether or not foreign money is coming into the u.s. we have henry m henry mcveigh w. tell me what you're hearing. >> the clients with the long-term focus are the ones we traditionally work with. we see opportunities. we have a very big presence in asia. i was just over in hong kong and india. we're finding things to do on the consumer side. i would tell you, i do think the chinese economy in particular, the export economy, is structurally broken. i think that's a big change. i've been going to china since 1995. i think there's a fundamental shift in what's going on. we saw that in the caterpillar numbers. you saw that in the federal express numbers. some p
environment, some big market changes, but you have a management team now who has a handle on the problems, who knows what to do. we've got a plan to fix this company. and i think investors have to decide, gee, do they think that hp can turn this ship around? do they believe in the management team? do they believe in our employees? do they believe that customers want hp to win, which i can tell you they do. and do they believe in the product lineup? we spent quite a bit of time yesterday at our analysts day talking about the coming products in each of our divisions. we showed our new pc lineup. we showed -- talked about our multifunction printers. we talked about ink in the office, ink advantage. we talked about our new, very energy efficient arm-based servers that i think could revolutionize the server market. we talked about three par and storage as well as we're the leader, really, now in the development of sdm, software-defined networking. so products are going to be a really important part of how we bring hp back. and investors got to look at that whole story and say, gee, do i think this
's environment? and how are clients allocating capital today? joining me now in a cnbc exclusive are two people at the forefront of those decisions. quinton price and robert kapito, the president of black rock. gentlemen, good to have you on the program. thank you so much for joining us. let me start with quinton, since i don't think you've been with us before. nice to have you on the program. you are the global head of the alpha strategies group. really, a global opportunity for allocating capital. to what do you attribute the rally today? was it the ecb, do you think? was it the election last night? what's going on? the debate, rather. >> europe has been driving the market for months. ever since draghi made his comments, going back two months, we've seen confidence flowing back into equities. we've removed the downside risk for markets. i think that's continued. i think people have got confidence back from last week and we're seeing a number of, you know, good reports of pick up in china and stuff which is all helping to create a positive tone. >> so you do believe the tail risk is not as bad
stocks keep making all-time highs in this environment? >> with us today are sam stovall and our own bob pisani. sam, it's going to come down to earnin earnings, right, which starts tomorrow? >> tomorrow. the bar is not just set low, it's set below, under water. >> below dirt. >> off the lows. capital iq is forecasting a 1.3% deline. it was down to 1.8%. big deal. i think some of the numbers underneath are a little more telling, such as right now the early beat ratio at 58% is below the average of 62%. in terms of guidance, those that are guiding negatively are 3.3 to 1 for those guiding positively. >> that sounds very negative for the stock market. >> well, i think it's baked in right now, or a lot of that is probably baked in. the real question is, whether we're likely to be seeing qe3 as the trough -- >> how can it be baked in if we're sitting at 4 1/2 year highs? how is that baked in? >> exactly. >> i think nothing is really new. what has come out yet that's going to tell us things are a lot worse than we anticipated? materials are expected to show 20% earnings decline. energy down 1
environment where price discovery has been destroyed because the price of money is fake and artificial and not real. >> peter, how are you investing in this environment ten? what are you doing in terms of allocating capital? >> well, you have to -- from the big picture fed perspective, you want to be protecting yourself in non-dollar assets and hard assets and commodities, precious metals, commodities that defends yourself against what the fed is doing. i think earnings will disappoint, not only for q-3, but also the guidance for q-4, so you have to be defensive over the next four weeks. >> everybody talks about the most hated rally. i know i coined that. while money has been coming out of stock mutual funds, there has been money going into etfs and high-yield bond funds. they're not really bond funds. in times of volatility, they act like stock funds. people are seeking alternatives in stock-like instruments. >> bob makes a great point about high yield. we have seen a virtual stampede into high yield. investors have to sell their soul to get 3% today. all is not well on the anniversar
-- liz: so how do i informs in that atmosphere? -- invest in that atmosphere? >> in this environment we think you go with what we refer to as our barbell strategy in equities. high growth sectors like technology, financials, home builders on one side, and high yield as tony talked about on the other end, high-yield bonds, emerging market bonds, preferred. that combination, that diversified portfolio has given, you know, a nice diversified approach with steady returns in this year and solid returns, and we think that continues to be the way to go through year end. david: all right. but, david, even you, the bull in this scenario, you see a pause right now. perhaps just a momentary pause, but until we get rid of this fiscal cliff problem, etc., and you do think that we're going to deal with it, you think eventually the politicians are going to solve this problem, why don't we just take our gains right now, hold off, maybe hold these gains just for a month or so until that fiscal cliff and other problems are resolved? >> you could. if someone wants to try to time that pullback. we're down
market, the environment, a bunch of things very uneven, and gas price that is have been higher, and take the scarce income away from consumers, and the nagging concerns about other things, about the elections, and what happens with tax policy and europe. and jobs and a little bit about gas. >> tell us a little bit about the elections. >> d do you think that people will feel better just knowing who's going to be in the white house, and then go ahead with financial decisions they were going to be making and buy whatever purchases they were thinking about. >> we hope it's going to work out like that. >> when they win, we don't know the congress they're going to work with. we don't know if it's something they can put their heads together and work with or the parties will be at logger heads. >> it will be organic. we have to see who is elected and the demeanor between the president and the congress he has to work with. >> susie: and you know we hear so much from the federal reserve about how much super low interest rats are going to help the economy. to what extent are the low rates motivatin
are headed next? if the u.s. economic environment remains relatively slow, traders predict new highs for the precious metal could come in the first half of next year. that's if gold is able to break through certain technical levels. >> i think if we can get above $1,816. we should see 19 and a quarter. if we can get above $1,925, then $2,000 is definitely in our sights. >> reporter: experts say one thing that could push gold prices above $2,000 an ounce this year is if president obama is re-elected. the thinking-- the president will keep bernanke employed, which means interest rates stay very, very low. suzanne pratt, nbr, new york. >> tom: stocks moved higher ahead of tomorrow's report on the september job market. the s&p 500 really gained moment just after 10:00 a.m. eastern time after the commerce department released its report on september factory orders. while total orders were down, it wasn't as bad as feared. the index finished higher by seven tenths of a percent. trading volume held steady on the big board-- 672 million shares. it was just under 1.6 billion on the nasdaq. fin
